I agree with Jimbo62. Not that my opinion matters. I don't wish to break the bank but I like what I see from Lloydz and they for my budget and my wish list.

you need to take the bolts out of the frame in the rear behind the back cylinder. You have to lift it a inch or two so you can get at the front rocker box.
Then you need shop manual and basic hand tools and torque wrench

When I did mine with the help of some friends, we could not get the fwd cam carrier out. Not enough clearance even with the frame bolts out and lifted. We had to disassemble it in place. Have a strong magnet handy as you may need to use it to remove the retainer pins in order to get the cam out. Not really a big deal.

I'm curious why you chose those over the Lloydz cams. They produce no more torque, and less horsepower than Lloydz cams.

Quieter for one.. and it's not about more torque it was about when the torque begins. Nothing night and day .. and besides the fact they were cheaper with no shipping costs on top of it.. and to be honest . It's quirk of mine, I rarely like to do what the masses do .. probably why I have vision living in HD country... like 6+ years ago everyone was like if you need a fuel controller you should only go with VFC, I said nah.. I'll go pc5..just cause I wanted to have more control .. it didn't give me more power.. I just rarely follow the crowd... im a pain in my own ass. !! Lol

Lol! I totally understand. I go my own way too. Been on Victory motorcycles for 16 years now.

I also buck the trend of putting loud pipes on my touring bike. I just get a kick out of having the fastest touring bike in the group I ride with (which includes some 1800 Goldwings as well as a bunch of Harleys) that looks and sounds 100% stock. It's a stealth bomber
